From Courchevel Moriond, on foot, go up alongside the Belvédère button lift. Beyond the first residential chalet, take the Route du Belvédère and go down as far as the hairpin bend at Roc Sabal.
You can also go to Roc Sabal directly by car or ski bus:
From Courchevel Moriond, take the Route du Belvédère by car or on the free Ski Bus from Belvédère as far as the hairpin bend in Roc Sabal (the eighth bend you come to on the way up).
From the Roc Sabal bend, go into the forest and follow the wide forest path for 750 metres. Then look out for a small footpath that goes down into the Laition forest on the left. You then arrive at the wide Lake Rosière footpath.
Turn right down the small footpath that goes through the forest and follow it to the bottom of the valley, where you can see the lake.
You can then enjoy a sunny break on the right bank of the lake.
Since 2014, a footbridge has been set up across Lake Rosière, giving access to new viewpoints on the site, with the Dent du Villard and its ravines looking down on the lake.
Don't linger too long at the foot of the large avalanche paths descending from the Dent du Villard.
On your right, you will see a footpath leading into the forest and then going upwards through steep bends.
At the first crossroads, turn right, then 50 metres further on, turn left along a steep footpath that continues to go up through the forest.
You then arrive at the wide Rosière footpath, which you should follow as far as the Route du Belvédère.
You then come to a bend at the Zénith accommodation centre (the seventh bend you come to on the way up from Courchevel 1650).
You can also go to the centre of Courchevel Moriond, as you did on the way out, by following the Belvédère button lift, by ski bus or on foot along the road.
